Quilter, Quilter, Quite Contrary....
Quilter, Quilter, Quite Contrary,
How much does your fabric weigh?!?
I am spending the afternoon MOVING my fabric cabinets from one side of the
room to the other. :c|
My quilting room is above my garage, the size of a 2 car garage, and the
wall where my cabinets *WERE* was above the garage door below.
I noticed a week or so ago that my floor felt "slightly slanty" and moving
some stuff out of the way, saw that the floor had dipped down away from teh
wall. There is about a 1" gap BELOW the baseboard and where the floor now
resides. I don't know what it will take to fix this. I didn't think that
cabinets against an outside wall would be too much unsupported weight.
Up against a wall SHOULD be able to bear weight....but...this is above the
garage door area, so there are less beams in the middle going from ground up
to the second level, so maybe it can't support as much weight.
Moving all this fabric has been a CHORE, and it makes me realize more to
what extent my fabric obsession has taken. I can't sew it fast enough! Even
though I have been basically NO BUY for 2 1/2 years now....it doesn't
deplete fast enough for me to make a dent on any of the shelves..especially
since I love scrap quilts so much and tend to go to those bins and the FQ's
If there is anything that makes a quilter take stock and take notice and
pledge to SEW SEW SEW instead of "oh, a sale, let's go fabric shopping
because this coupon is burning a hole in my pocket" it's having to MOVE the
stash and the cabinets, even across the room.
Paralyzed by the stash?? You bet!
